MI Bill Addressing Anti-Competitive Practices signed into Law

Share Post

Approved by the Governor, H.B. 4961 amends the Michigan Liquor Control Code to prohibit manufacturers of alcohol from requesting, requiring, or prohibiting certain actions of distributors, including the production of financial records. The legislation is meant to address a concern that large breweries are participating in anti-competitive practices by changing the terms in equity agreements and threatening to mark wholesalers out of compliance if they object.
